Crystal Reports 2013 and asp.net

I have been given a great opportunity at work to create a standardized development environment that will be deployed to any future developers being hired. I have been tasked with creating this environment and what I would *like* is to begin with as modern an environment as possible, which would put off any upgrades for a year or two at least. I want to use Visual Studio 2013 Pro, Resharper, and Crystal Reports 2013.

I am testing the results now and have verified that a report created in CR2013 (trial version) will successfully display inside our web-based ERP system. However, I have not figured out how to display them on our Intranet site which asp.net 4.0 (hopefully soon to be 4.5).

What is the correct way to display a report generated in Crystal Reports 2013 on a webserver? I have been using CR for VS 2010, but prefer the standalone version of CR. I don't necessarily need integration into VS other than to tell VS what the name of the report is and declare variables, etc. I have a standalone copy of CR2013 installed on my machine. When I debug the page in VS2010, the report displays successfully. When I publish it to my development server, it does not.

I am developing my "wish list" and want to make sure I put the correct versions of applications on there.

CR2013 does NOT have an SDK.  SAP/Crystal has decided to take 2 divergent paths with Crystal.

1.  Stand-alone versions are intended to be used with BO Enterprise/Business Intelligence and Crystal Server.  They will not have an SDK for building applications for them.  I believe there is an SDK for BI but I believe you need to be a partner with them.

2.  Crystal for VS versions will be available and can be used to develop applications using Visual Studio.  The applications will be able to display and use reports from the standalone versions since at least for now there is no difference in the report file structure.

It may be you will have to wait for the version for VS2013 to be released which I believe is scheduled for next quarter.
